Trump on Abortion

In 1999, he was in favor of keeping partial-birth abortion legal. (Russert either confused partial-birth abortions with third-trimester abortions, or asked him about that as well, but in either case Trump left the topic alone.) In 2011, when he was thinking of running for president as a Republican, he said he had become pro-life.
